Michael Moore wants to make money, but he also wants fame. I think he has enough fame and notoriety right now to ensure that money will follow him the rest of his lifetime, so my guess is that he wouldn't be all that angered over illegal downloads of his film. All the downloads will do is continue to fuel his controversial status and cement his lasting fame for years to come.

I, for one, don't think people who make documentaries as political vehicles, or who bend facts into lies, deserve any of my money. Therefore, politicians regardless of party won't be seeing any of it, and neither will Michael Moore if I can help it. If I can download his film, I will.

TAMBORA…You were completely correct in your statement:
“I think he has enough fame and notoriety right now to ensure that money will follow him the rest of his lifetime, so my guess is that he wouldn't be all that angered over illegal downloads of his film.”
Michael Moore did a press conference and said that he is not against file sharing if no money is made from it. He has made A LOT of money and he is not against it at all.
Now I like him even more.

Forum: opensource_movies Subject: DIGITAL PIRACY or IS IT NONSENSE???

IT CHIC the movie clip is most relevant ,interseting and useful..My continuing respect for M.Moore has increased. After viewing, several thoughts came 1.I buy a book and lend it and nobody worries. The same should apply to Movies or Recorded Music. 2. I buy a book and I know that it will last my lifetime or longer . BUT when I buy a CD or DVD, I cannot be sure that even a year later, through natural causes( as mould viral attack ,etc) it will be rendered useless and unplayable. HOW MANY people have applied to Corporations for a refund ( their cases are unreported and receive NO publicity)???? I am tired of the CORPORATION GREED PROPAGANDA..

All of which reminds me...why is file sharing considered legally actionable, when one can buy used CD's and videos anywhere?
I actually mean this as a serious question, not a veiled statement of opinion. Has there ever been a legal challenge to used record stores, etc? If so, wouldn't there be a precedent for the current situation? Any lawyers out there?

Apparently (and I am not a lawyer!), the legitimacy of the resale of physical goods has got something to do with the doctrine of 'First Sale', which is defined (by somebody random) as:

''First sale' limits the rights of the holder of a Copyright from attempting to control the actions of the customer or third party following the initial sale of licensed goods.'

The only example I know of somebody trying to limit re-sale relates to Japanese videogames, where a number of publishers tried to have re-sale banned. I'm not sure they succeeded, but I've seen at least one Japanese game with a 'no resale' logo on it (!) - here's a (rather technical) article about one of the legal battles over this point:

Still, it's in a large font, so that should make it easier to understand.

s!

PS - If you're filesharing, then you're not 're-selling' a recording, you're just making a new copy :) I believe iTunes has a EULA-based ban on re-sale (including deletion of the original item), too, but I'm not sure about that - that's the same kind of problem.

With the torrent sites you are not getting the complete file from one person, just a slice of it (and there are no shared drives). That is why there has been no issue with IP's being summoned through these sites. You can do a netstat and see who is connected and SOMETIMES it will resolve the IP address, but if you are into file sharing, this is the way to go and the downloads are a lot faster then WinMx (also many files on the WinMx etc carry viruses).
The sites themselves are having problems, Microsoft sent isohunt.com a cease and desist order for displaying their software (for download).
The Michael Moore clip was obtained from a torrent site
Ironic?

Seems like the law hasn't yet settled on the appropriate metaphors for the current era. With physical things, we could always refer back to apples and oranges, and who's got something in their own two hands--possession being "9/10ths of the law". Then in came the idea of intellectual property, and things got complicated, but at least that property was attached to, or contained in, a physical item. Now we're in some kind of "quantum" period, where the intellectual property can be separated from its physical carrier, transported anywhere, and re-assembled. It seems like we need a whole new legal...dare I say it...paradigm.
Ugh. Sorry about that.

You CAN download his film.
If you need assistance ask.
What you do with my help is up to you.
And I'm sure; you will delete it IMMEDIATELY from your hard drive....
Plus, he has made more money on this film during opening weekend then he has EVER on 'Bowling for Columbine'.
The smartest thing he can do is show it in the theaters for two months and have it print to video immediately.
He is not featured in this like he is in ‘Bowling for Columbine’. His presence is minimal.
It wasn’t what I thought it would be, I’m sure most people will feel that way also.

TAMBORA..you could make YOUR own version of the Moore movie and it could be an improvement( you will need Show Biz Talent for your film to make millions). The script could be easily assembled from the many news reports and film reviews . I would think that most of the Movie Clips could be downloaded from the internet and other good ones could be added. Then put the lot into Windows Movie Maker.................I AM WAITING

I don't have enough knowledge of current events to make a literate documentary about the last four years or so, and certainly not one with the wit and scope I've been assured Fahrenheit 9/11 has. And besides, I'm working on other projects that will certainly not be as popular, but will have more significance to me personally, and will therefore be better films. You'll have to wait, unfortunately.

CASHEL.. I completed a wonderful, happy film a year ago. I attempted to post it but Simon had kicked it back due to issues I need to get resolved first. As soon as that is done I will post it.
I think you will be pleasantly surprised.
It’s a concept piece that could definitely be a viable genre for mass media.

And its my Moms favorite.
